Please list the date of your print or post an image with the films registration date. There are 4 post-1914 versions with this title listed in a quick on-line search. The one you have maybe unregistered.
There are also many loopholes that could void what seems to be a proper registration of the copyright. Search the term 'PD' or 'copyright' on the Forums section here to become acquainted with the controversy.
